Re: [jetty-users] New user best practice: getting started w/ spring

I've updated the release version table at to show that jetty-7 is the main,
stable release stream.

Jetty 7 is definitely considered stable. As Jetty 7 (core components) is
an Eclipse Foundation project, you should trust the Eclipse designation,
while the information on Codehaus site is outdated. For information
about Jetty 7 you should refer to the Jetty Eclipse web site at, and the documentation at

As far as the startup process goes, it is documented at, while web application
deployment is documented at, so if you
already build a WAR file for your project, you should be able to get
your application running in no time.

    Could someone give me a quick rundown of the best practice for starting
    Jetty as a standalone app/web server?  I’m migrating an app that
    uses the
    Spring framework.

    I was confused with the docs regarding startup, they all seem to
    refer to
    start.config, but in looking at the 7.1.6 build from Codehaus (I
    guess this
    is the right package since it includes some Spring support) all I
    see is a
    start.ini which appears very different.

    It seems like using the start.jar is a fine way of doing things
    with easy support for kicking off the spring framework), but using
    it is a
    little awkward with regards to where everything should reside,
    paths, etc.
    Should I build my project under the directory structure that the jetty
    package creates by default?

    How’d you all go about it? Tomcat’s more structured and easier to
    but I have a low memory requirement so I thought I’d give Jetty a go

    Also, the codehaus site and the eclipse site disagree about the
    status of
    Jetty 7, codehaus suggesting it is “Almost Stable”, and eclipse
    labeling it
    “Stable”. What should a new user think? Docs mostly seem to support 6 as
    I’ve seen so far.

    Thanks for some help pointing the newbie in the right direction out
    of the
    start gate.
